Excellent location for sight seeing

This was our first trip to Amsterdam and we booked on line and were very pleased with our accommodation. The breakfast buffet was a good example of a taste of Dutch and we enjoyed everything about the hotel.

Comfortable and clean

All was great except it was not clear where the hotel was located in reference to the central train station. Either needed easier navigation on website to find this out or a better map. Otherwise, the hotel was great!

A good value

I arrived 6 hours before check-in time, and the staff was happy to check my bags, keep my computer in the (more-secure) back office, and give me a map and directions to the museums so I could keep occupied. Throughout my stay the desk staff was always pleasant and helpful. The room was small but clean, typical of European hotels. When I first got to the room, I was concerned because it was right next to the elevator. No worries, the soundproofing was so good I wouldn't have known the elevator was there. Conveniently located one block from a stop on the tram #16 line. In a quiet neighborhood outside the central area, but only a 25 minute ride from the Central Station in one direction and 15-20 minutes from Vrije Universiteit, where I was visiting, in the other. If you're arriving by tram, the stop is Emmastraat, then walk 1 block back toward the city center. Cabs are outrageous in Amsterdam, but you don't need them.

If you're looking for souvenir junk for your kids, and you don't want your 6-year-old walking around with a [*] or sexual innuendo on her t-shirt, you're mostly stuck with trashy ceramic windmills/wooden shoes. If you see something acceptable, snap it up. [...] Whatever. The airport has souvenirs that cater to a wider variety of tastes than most shops in town.

Perfect location

Good location if you want quiet but to still be within walking distance of attractions of Amsterdam. It is only a quick and cheap cab ride to the "City Center".

for high end boutique shops, it is great. If you want souvenirs and other Amsterdam "favorites" you will have to walk or cab it.

great location

The hotel had a great location, only a block away from a tram. The neighborhood is really posh, and there are a lot of decent places to eat as well.

Great Holiday

Lovely hotel, helpful staff. The Valentine's dinner we had in the restaurant was first rate. The hotel is not as close to the centre of Amsterdam as we would have liked, but there is a frequent tram service.

Short weekend break

No problems at all. Very handy for the 16 tram that only takes 15 minutes to get you to Dam Square. Had a room on the second floor that was on the same side of building as the tram lines however we were not troubled by noise. All staff we met were friendly and helpful.

Excellent value at the Memphis Hotel.

Located in a nice area of Amsterdam, my room was upgraded which was perfectly fine. Staff was extremely courteous and took care of any needs. I visited not only Amsterdam, but Brugge Belgium, as well as had dinner with friends in Haarlem. I would certainly go back to this hotel in the future. Jack Colgan

Purchase a 72 hour tram pass as opposed to buying a new 24 hour pass every day. 72 hr.pass was 16Euro as opposed to 7.50 for the 24 hr one.

Neck-aches...

Great hotel if you get a really nice deal! Perfect location, 17 minutes away from the Central Station. There is no pillow menu, and had to sleep on pretty deflated pillows. No damage done, but made our vacation a little strained.

Good and clean, 4 star level

Generally a good stay. Nice and clean hotel. Typical four star quality, clean but not very modern in terms of amenities. New towels but not sheets every day. No toiletries. Friendly staff and no problems during the stay. A/C in the room. Hotel is in a very nice area, lots of nice cafes. Location is 10 minutes from town centre by tram. Recommended, good quality for the price!
